Restaurants Off the Beaten Path in Nantucket: Do They Exist?

My family has been going to Nantucket since I was a kid and I feel like I've probably eaten at least once at almost every better known or upscale restaurant like American Seasons, Corazon del Mar, Black Eyed Susan's, Oran Mor and Pi Pizzeria. My wife and I now live in NYC where we have plenty of access to good, high-end dining, so I'm not sure we want a whole lot more of that on Nantucket, unless there's something that really is done far better, there. We are planning on one dinner at Company of the Cauldron, since we like that restaurant a lot.

What restaurants can you think of that are more off the beaten path? Last summer, we found a Salvadoran restaurant called El Rincon. It had surprisingly good pupusas, though some of the other offerings weren't that great.

Are there more restaurants like that hiding out on the island that I don't know of? What has opened in the past year? I think I heard about a Todd English restaurant opening. Is that any good?
